Regional Repositories and the Public

Sub Work Package 3.2 will analyze the commonalities and differences in public participation in radioactive waste disposal developments that exist between national and multinational options. It will also elaborate proposals on how to approach public participation and transparency in the case of a multinational solution.

Available information and results achieved in various national projects will be summarized and analyzed. Comparisons will be made between the existing approaches to public involvement in national disposal programmes and studies and proposed approaches for the multinational option. Stakeholder round tables will be established to discuss and analyse the different options for public participation associated with the siting of regional repositories. Finally, recommendations will be made with regard to national and regional public involvement programmes including proposals for further relevant EU activities.
